The Tupperware Blitzkrieg
I was raised in Harwood Heights, Ill., a suburb bordering Chicago, growing up across the parking lot from the neighborhood tavern that my grandfather built in the 1930s. I’m all over the map when it comes to what I like in literature, music, TV and movies, but I do tend to veer toward some more than others. In short, I'm interested in any number of things, far too many for my limited free time to accommodate. As a writer I tend to stay in the fantasy and science fiction genres (adding liberal doses of humor when needed) but I’m willing to try my hand at anything, which, curiously enough, led to my three books I’ve published.
To Touch the Sun
From Wikipedia.org: Found footage is a genre of film making, especially horror, in which all or a substantial part of a film is presented as discovered film or video recordings, often left behind by missing or dead protagonists.
Terry M. West and Pleasant Storm Entertainment, Inc. present a revolutionary approach to the horror fiction anthology. JOURNALS OF HORROR: Found Fiction is a collection of terror inspired by the mechanics of the found footage horror film. In JOURNALS OF HORROR, the stories presented are horrific encounters committed to paper, item or device and discovered later. Each tale is a case file that has been transcribed from some type of unearthed diary. These tales can be discovered anywhere.
This anthology is filled with some of the hottest talent in the horror fiction genre: P.D. Cacek, Todd Keisling, Glenn Rolfe, Robin Dover, DS Ullery, Essel Pratt, Michael Thomas-Knight, John Ledger, Paul D. Marks, Sonja Thomas, Paula Cappa, Stuart Keane, Darryl Dawson, Crystal Leflar, Lori R. Lopez, Michael Seese, Jeff O’Brien, Matt Hayward, Joseph Ramshaw, Michael McGlade, DJ Tyrer, Wesley Thomas, Regina West, Evan Purcell, Robert McGough, Erik Gustafson, Christopher Alan Broadstone and Robert Holt.
JOH is the first anthology written entirely in epistolary form.
The love of people takes a back seat to money in America. The evidence is there for all to see. Look at how politicians make decisions. Look at how law enforcement make decisions. Look at how business owners make decisions. Look at how educators make decisions. Look at how decisions are made in all the entertainment fields. Look at how clergy make decisions about location, congregations. Look at how it all trickles down into communities and homes in our daily lives. Lack of money leads to deteriorated communities, leads to destruction of property and lives, leads to crime. America values are out of order when money comes first, property next & people are last. Look around and answer the question, Where is America headed?
We're living in a age when evil is called good and good is called evil. Both adults and children are being bombarded with evil that is presented in a good way. What do we do with such things? How do we react? What is proper in God's eyes?
